2 Years Ago

2 Years ago I said yes to the most amazing man in the world
I can't believe that it has been 2 years!
Where does the time go?
These past 2 years with Nathan have been the best!
I feel like it isn't possible to love someone So much
and yet I feel like not only has our relationship grown but our love for each other as well
I really am blessed to be married to such a great man
and I am so thankful for our lives together
I am looking forward to see what the future holds for us
and where this next year will take us!
Hopefully I will post more wedding pictures this month
I have never really posted all of them
PS: My nephew and niece are so cute in this picture!

A Christmas Surprise

I had a Christmas surprise
My little sister bought me not one, but two kittens
They are my babies
They are female and 8 weeks old!
I am super excited to take them home
but before I take them home I have to name them
I am not really good at naming my pets
my last cat was koshka=female cat in Russian
and before that I named my cat meow meow
so I am taking any suggestions
Would Winston for a girl be bad?

Family Visit

A week ago my parents and little sister came to visit
I introduced my family to Pandora Radio


They rocked out

My mom decorated my place

We went to the pier


and had lunch at Ruby's

We celebrated my Dad's birthday

We went to the mall

Dad held all the bags :)

We saw Santa
I felt like I was 6

Santa gave me a candy cane

It was great spending time with my family

I am looking forward for Friday to spend more time with them!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
(I love saying that!)

Out of the Ordinary


Nathan and I did something our of the ordinary

we went to Lake Tahoe

I missed school...which I never do
I especially don't miss school right before finals week
but I did
and I am glad I did too!

It is also not like us to drive 7 hours to go somewhere
but we did and I am glad
Lake Tahoe was a super nice mini vacation
I had a lot of first experiences there
I had my first snowball fight
Nathan pegged me in the face causing my mascara to run
I went snowboarding for the first time

I felt like this a lot~exhausted

But eventually I would sit up

Attempt to get up by killing my knees
My tiny arms couldn't pick me up

Be ready to go

and end up crashing into a fence

Or end up back on my butt

Luckily I had a patient and cute instructor...Husband!

According to my great teacher I did better than expected
the first 2 runs were hard but I got the hang of things on the 3trd run
and did about 10 runs total!
Check out the amazing view from the lifts!
and had a lot of fun!

My car experienced it first snow
We had a glimpse of what parenthood would be like when little Natalie didn't go to bed
lets just say I am not ready to give up my sleep yet


I attempted to make a snow angel

We went sledding
Overall we had a great trip with friends
Thank you Juan and Audrey for inviting us!
I am looking forward to going snowboarding again!
Any beginners want to go with me?
PS: I was sore for a week~but I had fun :)

Merry Christmas!

Fall Fun

I never blogged about a few exciting events that happened the past few months

He is pretty excited to not wear glasses
For a week after the surgery he had to wear some funny gogles to bed
His eyes were bloody red for a few weeks also

The Princess and me
We had a great time
I even got to see a few of my friends from my study abroad
I have missed these girls
(Emily I wish you could have been there)
We got some yummy treats from The Chocolate in Orem
A cute cupcake
Overall We had a great trip and it was a lot of fun!
Some pretty fall leaves
Yummy Tortilla Soup and Pumpkin Pie
